DANSVILLE — Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of a Morrisville resident on felony charges after a traffic stop.

On Dec. 28, Deputy Michael Wade was on patrol and stopped a vehicle on Liberty Street in the Village of Dansville for a traffic violation.

The driver was identified as Brett A. Herrick, 35, of Morrisville. During the course of the deputy's roadside investigation, he smelled the strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. Further investigation revealed that Herrick was in possession of approximately 12 ounces of marijuana (3/4 of a pound).

Herrick was arrested and charged with felony, third-degree criminal possession of marijuana.
